Less frequent site updates for the next week
« on: November 11, 2016, 09:29:25 am »
I'll be traveling for the next week, so I might not be able to run daily site updates.  I'll run them when time and network connectivity permit, but don't be alarmed if we go 3 or 4 days in between.  I should be able to acknowledge emailed list file updates daily, at least.

Connectivity was better than expected, but I still had a couple days without being able to launch an update.  One is running now with all of the highway data and list update files received over the last few days.  Should be back on a schedule of an update at least once a day now.

I expect to be traveling much of the next two weeks.  I will process list file submissions and run site updates when I can but don't be surprised if it's a few days or even a week between updates, especially the first week of the new year.

Some pretty impressive technology let me run last night's site update while traveling at 70 MPH in my car's passenger seat on I-95 in Virginia.  An ssh connection to my FreeBSD server at home was all that needed the mobile data connection.  The big file transfer parts were only done using my home network connection.  I know we all pretty much expect to be able to do anything from anywhere but I still find it amazing that I could do what I did and without spending any money beyond a standard data plan, of which I needed to use very little.

That's believable.  I downloaded data, created a GIS map, and uploaded it/posted about it all while on I-91 Christmas night...

I've been able to run site updates more regularly than expected on the first part of my trip.  The last update of 2016 is underway now.  I should be able to get one launched tomorrow morning or early afternoon if there are any highway data or list file updates between now and then.  Hard to say after that.

2016 has been quite a year for the project, and I'm looking forward to what we can accomplish for 2017!

Busy couple days here, but I hope to launch a site update tonight.  If not, I'll get one done tomorrow.

Site update in progress now, and I hope to be back on a daily update schedule for the forseeable future.

I'm traveling for a week starting tomorrow (Tuesday).  Frequency of site updates after tonight's (which just crashed with a data error...hope to get it through) will depend on the availability of reliable network and time to run them.  I doubt I'll be able to run them daily, but hopefully I'll get at least one or two in while I'm away.

A site update is running now from an airplane because technology lets me do so.  We'll see if it completes successfully.  Landing soon, so I can't babysit it.

Didn't work, but my fault, not the technology.  Trying again now, from a normal hotel network connection.

Currently in progress site update launched from altitude 38,000 feet over Montana.  Again, because I can.

Yes, you made no fault this time ;)

However, thanks for doing it :)

Tonight's just-completed site update might be the last before Sunday night.  Off to Lake Placid for some hockey playoffs and a ski day at Whiteface.  If any changes come in before noon Friday, there's a chance I'll be able to run one more before I leave.

Back in business tonight.  A site update just completed with far more highway data and list file updates than usual in a single update.  Great job everyone: there was only one very minor typo I had to fix.  I hope to be back on a daily update schedule for the foreseeable future.
